Audience Reviews for The Happiness of the Katakuris

  • Jan 05, 2012
    This is how you mix horror, comedy and musical into 2 hours of entertainment. This is how you do it. Miike, you're a fucking genius.

    At times halarious, but always creative.

    Way too much random nonsense and not enough substance.

    The beginning made no sense what so ever, the story was being told through the daughter, but loses that perspective the rest of the film. The songs were okay, but I felt that the pacing was off. Points for uniqueness only go so far.
